Judith Adong almost outdid herself when she staged Ga-AD last year.
The show was derived from its brilliant script that detailed deceit and exploitation in the church. This weekend, Silent Voices Uganda and Adong will be making a return to the National theatre auditorium with two productions.
Adong will be presenting Holy Maria and Blood – the two productions she has written and directed. The two shows will be staged in one sitting because they are shorter than her previous ones.
Holy Maria is about Anna Maria, wife to a pastor on an unforgettable adventure with her husband’s mistress; whereas Blood is about a white American journalist who is forced to confront his part in American racism when he visits an African city to cover the murder of a young African gay boy.
The shows feature a cast of strongholds like Yvonne Koreta, Pamela Karyeko, Robert Ernest Bbumba, River Dan Rugaju and Afroman Spice’s Linda Nabasa. It opens today at the National theatre at 7:30pm, and will go on until Sunday.
Tickets go for Shs 30,000 and Shs 5,000 for students.
